Great to see you tackle this Kent! Do you have dimensions of the big slabs?

Cheers

Unfortunately not, they will eventually do some surveys at Grove, but for now I'm just going with my best guess, 'rule of thumb' or whatever, to get things going...

Concrete was poured a couple of weeks ago, moment of truth turning the slate over from the mirrored pouring...

The result is better than I expected, no big air pockets or anything...

The division of the concrete slabs have been made with a hobby knife. Some nice irregularities add some texture to the concrete...

That's it for now: Kent

Amazing looking!   How much does it weigh out of curiosity? 

 

It's really not that heavy, 1 cm thick concrete approx. 50x50 cm's 5-6 kg's? I will put it on the scale once I get it home....

The 'Rasensteine' have been cast in resin. The pattern becomes visible, when they are put together.

Started working on the water drain of the runway. I will need about 55 cm's.

Adding 'dirt' to the grass slates...

Some groundwork with small stones and sand...

It's getting there...
